Defining Resistance

c) Control Advantages

Knowing the just one counter to each form of expected resistance offered will enable you to control him when he tries to escape your custody.

Joint locks are directional, so match his resistive movement with an appropriate body takedown.

PRO TIP: just staying in his blind spot will keep you as safe as possible and buy you time while transitioning to a joint lock that enables further control or a takedown, all leading to handcuffing.

If no resistance is offered you are free to escort or handcuff him in the standing position.

Resistance should lead to a takedown so that his mobility, stability, and base of strength are taken away from him.

Continuous control offers him little or no opportunity to escape or assault you while exerting professional dominance over him.
